Black & White Photography


Sometimes, when I’m out driving, I encounter a scene that just seems to be somewhere that I’m not. Yeah, I know, you just said “Huh?”.

You see, coming across this was like seeing something in a dream. It was early morning, misty with a slight fog in the air. Everything seemed soft and the going was slow. I rounded a curve and this was like stepping into a dream.

I don’t think that I actually fell asleep, for I didn’t go off of the road. That’s not what I’m saying, but it is like I went into a different time zone or a different world. It even felt different. The thing is, that just as soon as I went around the next curve, the fog was gone and a little sun was trying to break through the overcast sky.
 The “Dreamscape” was gone.

It was at this point that I noticed that I was holding my camera and I don’t even remember picking it up. Now my camera is always beside me when I’m out, and I am so used to reaching for it and turning it on in one motion that it is possible that this scene so captured my attention that my reflective instincts just reacted to my visual senses.

My settings are always preset and all I have to do is just point and shoot. This time this is what I captured… a “Dreamscape”…


  1. There is a spot on Pea Vine road (looks similar to this location?) that always makes feel deja vu-y. Every time I drive through, I feel like I have been there, in distress, in a dream. The trees form this beautiful canopy and is simultaneously spooky yet beautiful.

    This is a beautiful shot Glenn. And I thank you for your lovely comment on my recent post. I appreciate your words very much.


  2. Love it! I know exactly what you mean though. Most of the time when I'm driving, yes I'm paying attention to the road, etc., but my mind is looking for that next great photograph:) I like to call it something like...seeing through my photographic eyes. I think it's like a phenomenon photographer's experience.

  3. Very nice words and beautiful image Glenn.

  4. Thanks, my Friends, for leaving such wonderful comments. It's great to see them here and not on facebook. Google+ or twitter. Although I use them a lot, seeing comments on the Journal itself is more meaningful and I do appreciate it so much. Thank you... :-)
